Sharjah's climate is warm in the summer and ideal in the winter

The emirate basks in more than 3,500 hours of sunshine a year, with an average annual rainfall of just over 100mm. The most pleasant time to visit is during the milder months from November to April, when average daytime highs range from 25°C to 35°C, but nowadays people visit Sharjah all year round.

 It is hot and humid from June to September, with highs of 41-43°C, but summer temperatures are bearable thanks to air conditioning in hotels, restaurants, malls and taxis, and chilled swimming pools to cool off in. With the influence of the mountains, the east coast tends to be cooler during the summer months.

 Lightweight summer clothing is suitable for most of the year; be sure to pack a cardigan, sweater or light jacket for cooler winter nights and air-conditioned premises.
